Just some pictures of gorgeous early Spring flowers… These were taken in the ol’ backyard in North Potomac and in cousin Madhavi’s yard in Centreville, VA with my Minolta Dynax 800si and my Sigma macro lens. Late March through mid-April is really an wonderful magical time in Maryland and Northern Virginia. I’ve never seen so many Forsythia bushes in bloom. And as for all the other flowers, words don’t suffice – only pictures can tell the story. The Sigma creates some very nice bokeh even when stopped down to f/11.
